Shadow City

Where villains become heroes and heroes are not what they seem

Los Angeles is an apocalyptic wasteland. Are you ready to enter a world of shadows?

Shadow City by Anna Mocikat is a Sci-Fi/Dark Fantasy story featuring a kickass female villain, larger-than-life heroes and a cinematic fast pace.

Only ruins are left of what once used to be LA. The few survivors of a horrific catastrophe live under the constant threat of radiation, mutated creatures, and worse… lurking in the shadows.

The nuclear disaster has shifted realities as we knew them and brought something into our world which threatens to exterminate humanity. Something so vicious that every living being is horrified of it. Something that feeds on suffering and violence.

But humans aren’t alone in their struggle for survival. Unexpected allies emerge from the shadows, and in the final stand, a nameless stranger will decide humanities fate.

It is here where villains become heroes and heroes are not what they seem. There is no light, and there is no dark. Only shadows…

Anna Mocikat was born in Warsaw, Poland, but spent most of her life in Germany where she attended film school, worked as a screenwriter and a game writer for several years.

Her “MUC” novels have been nominated for the most prestigious awards for Fantasy and Science-Fiction in Germany. In 2016 Anna Mocikat moved to the USA where she continued her writing career in English. She lives in Greenville, South Carolina.

Copies of Shadow City are available at all major booksellers, including Black Rose Writing, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
